"Pretty good, and even better as leftovers. I doubled the recipe and froze one and the frozen casserole was good also; not soggy"

"This was very tasty. We ended up eating these as tacos instead. I love the combination of sweet potato, black beans, and meat. I added extra seasoning like garlic and crushed red pepper to make these spicy."

"I don't know what I did wrong, but I found this to just be ok. I followed the directions exactly, except I put it in an 8x8 pan because I didn't have a pie dish big enough for that. The tortillas wound up really gooey and kind of disgusting. The meat mixture was also just ok, it didn't blow me away or anything. Maybe it's because I used yam instead of sweet potato? I doubt I'd retry this again even with sweet potato, since all the rest of the flavors weren't very good."

"This was REALLY good! I followed the directions except I used less chili powder, (1 tsp.) and I made my own homemade flour tortillas. (I used about 5 or 6 homemade tortillas). Also, I used a tall casserole dish so it would all fit. My husband told me four times during supper just how delicious he thought it was. I loved it too. Thank you for sharing your recipe!"

"Super easy and yummy! A nice alternative to our standard recipe. Very mild- but we like it that way. Used a glass 8x8 pan instead of pie plate. It never would have all fit in there."

"This is relatively simple and good. I would have liked it to be a little spicier, but definitely a good weeknight meal."

"Loved it. The sweet potatoes were an excellent touch. I used a regular casserole dish. Very tasty, easy, and cheap."

"Very good. My 9" regular pie dish only fit two layers, not three, so I will use less ground beef next time."
